This was a wonderful course. We had to use the sharing that Google is famous for to submit assignments. The instructor was available for questions via document comments (perfect!). He encouraged deeper understanding and challenged me to explore some of the areas the course covered in a deeper manner. He was able to truly relate my learning to my teaching assignments at school.
